If a class is having poor behavior moments, I take a minute to reverse the role modeling.I sit at a student's desk, and allow a small group of students to stand up as the teachers. There assignment is to get me to write my name on a piece of paper. While they're trying to teach me to do this, I display actions that they use. Sometimes I also give role modeling action cards and have small groups display the wrong behaviors while others tell what is wrong and how to fix it. We video these groups as well and review how to change behavior.
